Explore the fascinating world of dragonflies and damselflies in this workshop with The Morton Arboretum. Join dragonfly monitor Cindy Crosby for an interactive, live Zoom session, followed by a field study on the Schulenberg Prairie.
Get an introduction to the natural history of the dragonfly, with beautiful images and recommended tools and techniques for identification of species commonly found in northern and central Illinois. Enjoy an overview of the cultural history of the dragonfly—its place in art, literature, music, and even cuisine. Then put your skills to work out on the prairie. Under the guidance of your instructor, you will practice field identification and learn some advanced identification skills. You’ll never see dragonflies in the same way again.
